Ti Nspire Security Bits
« on: August 19, 2014, 10:15:56 pm »
My arrow keys are a bit buggy and I suspect that the rubber contacts need to be cleaned on the inside, however I do not have the special security bit required to open the device. Could someone link me to a page that sells them?

If you have a touchpad calc like the one in your avatar, there is only one button inside it, and it's a metal dome, not a rubber key. My CX's touchpad has always been really annoying to use.

Spoiler For some of the calcs I own:



(actually I have quite a few more than this, but I don't feel like making bars for them all.)

Ebay would most likely be the place, but if you don't live in USA, shipping charges might be about 6 times the cost of the item.

Torx works just fine, at least for the two screws at the bottom. The top screws are "single use" ones, which can't be taken out easily. Which calc model do you have?

Then it's the touchpad. There's only one mechanical button under it, so the position of your finger determindes which direction you press.
